Have you ever wanted to create your own movie poster for a joke
gift? Or perhaps you’d like a custom-made motivational poster for
your sales team? Poster Forge lets you create your own movie,
motivational, or Old West “wanted” posters–for free.
The program is easy to use. Just open Poster Forge and select
the type of poster you want–motivational, movie, or “Wanted”–load
your image, and fill out the fields. You can specify your text’s
font and color, but the size is predetermined. You cannot resize or
crop your photo within the program; this may require you to tweak
your photo in an image editor until it is the right size for the
layout you choose.
You can save your creations in .bmp, .jpg, .tif, .png, or .gif
files and post them to the Web, or print them out. The program uses
an included add-on called ProPoster to print your creations. Set
the poster size (in millimeters, centimeters, or inches) and the
program divides the image into single-page chunks to paste together
This software is free for noncommercial use, but it prints
“Powered by Poster Forge” at the bottom of every poster. The $10
Professional version, available at Ronyasoft’s site, removes the
watermark but adds no additional features.
Poster Forge is a fun little photo tool for easily creating
gifts and motivational posters. Teachers could probably put this
freebie to good use in the classroom.
